She was, without question, the sexiest, most striking woman he’d ever seen. But it changed nothing. She was still a gang member, and he still loved her sister.
“One night, Lucia. Everyone needs someone. Even me. Tonight, I’m yours. Your someone.”
It was the bad stuff that breathed vivid life into the good.
The price of love is devastation.”
What a cruel thing love was, silent and desolate in its torture. How ironic that loving someone was the thing that hurt the most.
Sorrow existed to breed happiness. Pain gave rise to pleasure. Loss brought about exploration.
She tasted like sin and paradise, a sweet combination that would never tire, never completely sate, because he would always want more.
More of her mouth.
More of her pussy.
More of this.
"I'm here for you and you alone."
"When she smiles. I feel a peace, unlike anything I've felt in my life."Tate Vades is on a mission to rescue Lucia Dias. Lucia is the sister of his dear friend Camila. Although Tate is willing to do whatever it takes to find Lucia and bring her home, he could never have prepared his heart for what would happen when he discovered all there is to know about Lucia. She has endured so much to survive and when Tate enters her dark world, even he, a man with plenty of demons, cannot believe the circumstances she has been forced to face. Now that he has found her, he will stop at nothing to rescue her and make her his.
"In that moment, he knew he would endure."Told in dual POV, Devastate delivers a gritty and action-packed dark romance with complex characters and an intricate plot. The supporting cast of characters is critical to the plot and the way in which they offer emotional and physical support to Lucia and Tate crafts together an impenetrable "family" that will not be torn apart. In addition to the darkness, there is much light as passion blooms between Tate and Lucia. The relationship between the two grows and transforms into an unstoppable force that can never be broken. Ms. Godwin offers plenty of twists and turns as these characters battle the evil that surrounds them. In this world, anything and everything can and will happen.
“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“What is it going to be Lucia? The easy way? Or…” He tightened his fingers against her throat, cutting her airflow. “The hard way?”
“With his hands on her hips, he drove inside her, feeding her every ruthless inch and unleashing the last of his restraint.”
Lucia’s smile was his responsibility, his goal, his everything. Her life, her health, all of her was his to protect.
There was nothing sexier than a woman with a gun. But Lucia was more than that. Strong, stunning, and gutsy as all hell, she was badass personified.
“You can’t fix this, Tate. Go home.”
"Without the bad stuff-the trauma, the fall, and the crash-joy wouldn't exist."
"The price of love is devastation."
"Free. She wished for nothing, prayed to no one, and had zilch to lose. If freedom was a state of mind, she was hopelessly liberated."
